What is counseling?

You can get the most out of our time together if you understand how counseling works, and what the process of practice entails. 

  • Building a relationship

  • Understanding your situation – Surveying the darkness

  • Setting goals – Finding light at the end of the tunnel

  • Doing the work – Walking step by step into the light

  • Weighing the risks – It’s still dark in here

  • Celebrating – Enjoying the light

When mind, body & spirit are in harmony, happiness is the natural result.
— Deepak Chopra

Is Counseling For Me?

People like you and me go to counseling every day for hundreds of different reasons, many of which are not because of a crisis.

Think of counseling like going to the doctor. Most of us attend doctors regularly for everything from getting a physical, treating a cold or the flu, or even treating a broken arm in the ER. Some of these trips are preventative and some of them are urgent.

Your mental, emotional, and spiritual health work the same way. There are degrees of need and degrees of care. Some people enter counseling through a crisis and others come in to prevent one. So wherever you are, counseling can benefit you.
